We love microbrews, especially here in the Pacific northwest. Our favorites are from Silver City Restaurant and Brewery in Silverdale, Wa. We occasionally buy some for home but mostly we drink it at the restaurant.
Indianola Pale Ale, Ridgetop Red, Fat, Fred (combo of Fat and Red), MacFarlane's Scotch Ale and Whoop Pass Double IPA are our favorites.

For drinking at home: Sierra Nevada, Alaskan Amber and Tequiza. We call the Tequiza a "lawnmower beer." It's best when you've been working outside in the heat and the beer's been in the freezer for 30 minutes.

Wine: Most reds, gerwurtzraminer and Freixenet champagne.

Spirits: My husband loves single malt Scotch. Also gin/tonic and bourbon/water.

A quote from the bar mirror at River City in Wichita, Ks:
"People who drink light beer don't really like the taste of beer, they just like to pee a lot."

I have been enjoying calendar beer from around the world. What a great gift.

Whenever I get a chance I get one of my favorites La Fin Du Monde a Tripel style beer brewed by Unibroue in Chambly/ Quebec/Canada.

I mostly drink Cabernet, don't judge, but I usually buy a box of Bota or an organic one from California that I can't think of at the moment. I can just have a glass and it stays fresh.

For Beer - Bass Ale, or Piraat Belgian Ale.

I am just starting to drink Ciders, some New England locals from Bantam, Rojo or Wunderkind. I like tart, not so sweet so suggestions would be great!

Not really into hard liquor, but I do enjoy a bloody mary now and then.

I drink all sorts of things! I especially enjoy Mott's clamatos like the pickled bean version, stouts, porters and some brown ales, good wine, digestives like Disaronno, cider, margaritas...

I've been pretty much a beer (Heine, Corona, Stella, pretty much all the imported ones I like) Gin (Tanqueray, and Bombay mostly) and Jack Daniels guy most of my drinking life but lately I've been getting a lot more into wine and Crown Royal (this stuff is really tasty).

What are you guys into?

For over a year, Big Sipper Red Wine, Napa, CA. Available only at totalwine.com/ 5 L $9.99+ tax. If you don't have Total Wine in your state, closest equivalent I've found is Franzia Dark Red Blend, $15-$20 5 L.

It's fair, but the trick to make it excellent is to add a favorite beverage. I do 3 parts wine, 1 part water, and 1 part cranberry juice which I think has grape juice plus apple juice Ocean Spray 100% juice.

If you try this and like it, please post. Many want the effect of alcohol, but they have trouble finding the taste that is right for them. Best wishes.

At least you have Trader Joe's. We aren't that lucky. We are hoping; they are getting closer all the time.

Now, what is our drink these days?
Well for me it is still pretty much Red Wine. My favorite is Melbac, but I like Pinot almost as well.

Summer time I will have a vodka or gin tonic from time to time and don't offer me a martini unless you want to carry me home: I can drink them all day. The only time I drink much of anything else is: when it is really cold I like a brandy after dinner sometimes and on a vacation, mainly a cruise I like a drink of any kind most of the time.

spoiled brat loves his scotch, for a change he drinks a little bourbon and he too, loves his Malbec.

It appears lately the two hot drinks are: Manhattans and Moscow Mules. Or at least around here.

Castello Del Poggio Moscato

Yago or Reál Sangria (depends which bottles of Sangria I can get at the time I run out and have to go to the store to get)

Also fan of various other brands of moscato. Llike the Pinot Grigio, Riesling, others,...

The occasional beer. I've been enjoying the Shell Raiser Orange (Belgian style wit beer) when we go out to the Greene Turtle. Some of the stouts he's had aren't too bad. Like hefeweizen,

I've got one to top all of yours!

Kefir beer

God, I'm awesome...

Oh yeah, Petite Sirah and Malbec. The best wine I've found is 6 dollars a bottle, no joke.
